Frequently Asked Questions

Illustrated Pig

Are you Insured?

Yes!  I am fully insured, RI Dept of Health licensed and certified, and maintain ServSafe Food Safety Manager’s certification.

I am having a small gathering of 20 guests. How much would a pig roast cost? 

Unfortunately, our minimum is 70 guests.  

How about 50 guests? 

Unfortunately, no.  Our minimum is 70.

Do you have rain dates?

Unfortunately, we don’t hold rain dates due to other scheduled events.  So, the show must go on!  We have tents to cook under, just in case.

Do you start cooking before you arrive?

No, all cooking and food preparation is done on-site, at your location, on our self-contained, custom-built “Oinkmaster Rotisseries”.

Do you start cooking the pig and then come back when it's done?

No, never.  I never leave the pig alone.  Something that looks that delicious is at risk of being stolen if left alone.

Where do you get your pigs?

I buy all my pigs from the most reputable meat wholesaler in RI.  They are USDA inspected, grain fed, and raised specifically for roasting.

How long does it take to cook a pig?

It takes between 5 -1/2 and 8 hours, depending on the size.  However, for larger events, we will sometimes cook two smaller pigs instead of one very large one for a shorter cooking time and a more stunning visual display!

How long have you been roasting pigs?

I roasted my first pig with my dad when I was 5 years old.  I’ve been roasting professionally since 2007.

What is the average price of a pig roast?

The average price is typically $22 to $29 per person (inclusive of tax and gratuity) with side dishes. The price will vary depending on how many side dishes are ordered.  The price per person decreases with a larger guest count.

What method of payments do you accept?

Cash, Venmo, Check, PayPal, Credit Card

What about leftovers?

It’s yours to keep!  I’ll gladly wrap any leftovers for timely reheating or refrigeration.
